Girl Like Her


He that giveth receiveth,

So I gave,

Gave her all I could,

And she reciprocated,

Gave me her heart,

The whole of it,

It interested me,

So I showed interest,

Grasped the moment,

Made her my own.

I prodded,

And prodded,

Her heart took it,

She’d smile,

Just to cover the pain,

And I’d prod some more,

Just to see her limit,

She was a soldier,

She never caved,

I had her to myself.

Even diamond has a breaking point,

She couldn’t take it any more,

Needed her heart back,

But I no longer had it,

I’d worn it out,

And now she was cold,

Turned on all,

Because of one,

I couldn’t undo my actions

I’d taken a good girl,

And left her for dead.


I died for a minute,

Lost consciousness,

Everything stopped,

My heart raced,

I could see,

But couldn’t feel,

I’d lost it all,

Everything except the pain,

The pain of losing her,

Losing my life.

Her body lay lifeless,

My cold hands over her,

If I had one wish,

It would be her,

Holding me,

She gave it all to me,

Her time,

Body and heart,

I could’ve have left her heart,

At least then she’d be alive.

I’m on ground but I’m drowning,

I try to stay afloat,

Take in as much air as possible,

But I always come short,

I was never God’s gift to women,

You were his gift to me,

I should have taken better care of you,

Now I’m stuck with myself,

There’s never a right time to be sorry,

Once lost, you can never be replaced.
